JAN 14.13 - SR BLAZE ARE LOOKING FOR SPONSORS TO HELP US REACH OUR END GOAL AS BASEBALL CANADA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS IN AUGUST!
The Sr Blaze are actively looking for sponsors and supporters help us reach our 2013 goal as Baseball Canada National Champions in August. As most people know, the Sr Blaze captured the BC Provincial Championship back in August 2012 in Prince George, BC. This win has allowed the Sr Blaze to represent BC at the 2013 Baseball Canada National Championships in Windsor Ontario from August 21st to August 26th 2013. With this great honor comes great costs.
The Sr Blaze play an aggressive schedule versus top teams from BC and from Washington State.. We currently also play in two leagues, the PIL and the PMBL. This program provides a place for young BC collegiate baseball players to play in the summer while they are at home from school. These players choose to play with the Sr Blaze so they can come home, be with family, work a part time job to afford the costs of school and play an ultra-competitive schedule versus the top teams around in order to be ready to go back to school in the fall. The Sr Blaze also have several older members that have have recently graduated school and are now at home working to support young families while chasing the dream of winning another Provincial Championship and the 1st National Championship in the Sr Blaze's short 4 year history.
If you would like to support and sponsor the Sr Blaze, please email us at email@example.com We hope to hear from you soon.
